Once the engine is in I can get the accessories in order, figure out what electric fan I want and etc, I would like to get the engine in before it gets cold considering I don’t think I’ve felt it be winter yet…

after that comes headers, electric oil pressure gauge, electrical water temp gauge

I assume you mean high volume? A high volume oil pump with stock pan can cause oil starvation issues, I have been told on several occasions. I'd suggest stick with a quality brand stock replacement
Yeah I got my eye on the melling one but I've been doing my homework (googling shit) and I've been seeing that issue you have mentioned, I may just run the stock one or purchase a new one just to be safe.
